Summit Bridge

Marinis Brothers Inc. of New Castle, DE, has secured a contract of $9,308,733.24 to perform coatings work and miscellaneous repairs on the Summit Bridge, which spans the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal.
 
The contract, awarded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Philadelphia District, requires SSPC-QP 1 and QP 2 certification. The project includes recoating the 600-foot-long main span, two 251-foot-long deck truss spans, and two 302-foot-long anchor spans on the 2,058-foot-long cantilever truss bridge.

The steel will be abrasive blast-cleaned to a Commercial finish (SSPC-SP 6); tested for soluble salts with as-needed remediation; and recoated with a zinc-rich epoxy primer, a polyamide epoxy stripe coat and intermediate, and an aliphatic polyurethane finish. The contract includes erecting Class 1A containment to capture the existing lead-bearing coatings.

The contract also includes applying a penetrating water repellent treatment to parapet surfaces, as well as repairing finger, expansion, and median joints.
